Confined Spaces

Colden Corporation routinely manages all aspects of confined space programs for our clients. Our consultants perform each confined space evaluation using the criteria set forth in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) general industry standard, 29 CFR 1910. 146, Permit-Required Confined Spaces (PRCS), and OSHA 1926.1200, Confined Spaces in Construction. Proper management of confined space programs assists our client’s in achieving their overall goal of maintaining a safer workplace by ensuring safe entry practices.
